“I got this recipe from my husband's grandmother. The first time I tried to make them, I didn't realize they were supposed to be small, like gnocchi or spaetzle, and I made them the size of golf balls - we still laugh about it! My kids can eat a whole bowl by themselves - a nice side dish with roast pork.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all of the above ingredients together,except bacon, adding just enough flour to make a doughy consistency.
  2. Bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil and add 1 teaspoon of salt to the water.
  3. Smear potato mixture on a small saucer and flick about one inch pieces into the boiling water.
  4. Start with just a few pieces - if they break apart, you need to add more flour to the mixture. If they stay together in the boiling water, cook until they float to the top, then cook another 3-4 minutes.
  5. Drain well and put into a casserole.
  6. Cook bacon pieces in a small frying pan until crisp, then dump grease and bacon over the top of the kluski - toss to coat.
  7. Serve warm with pork and applesauce.
